We love the book Tuck Me In! by Dean Hacohen and Sherry Scharschmidt. My three year old chooses this book to read almost every night of the week and it is one that I am always happy to read! In Tuck Me In! there is a variety of adorable animals that are ready to be tucked in. By turning the page, you "tuck" the animals in with a colorful blanket that matches the animal's pillow. My little guy loves to say "Good night Baby Zebra" or "Good night Baby Pig" after tucking in the animals, but his favorite is Baby Hedgehog. Each page opposite the baby animals is an illustration of the night sky. A star is added to the night sky for each animal you tuck into bed, so counting stars is a bonus activity as you read this bedtime book.
My son giggles every time we read the last page of Tuck Me In!
"Does anyone else need to be tucked in? Do you? Good night, you!"
Thanks to Grandma, my little guy has his own Baby Hedgehog puppet that he can tuck in every night. He was so tired last night that he didn't even move after being tucked in!
